Fi Katzler

Fi Katzler was born in Malta and grew up on the coast in Hampshire.  Having studied art in the UK, she moved to Aix-en-Provence in 2008. There she continued to paint, studying with the Gardanne Art School and the Leo Marchutz School of Art. 
 
Fi has always been interested in the landscapes around her and never tires of the stunning scenery in Provence and the intense luminosity of the light that has inspired so many in the past, notably Cezanne and Van Gogh.  
 
Predominantly a ‘plein air’ artist, Fi loves to paint the local landscape and to be immersed in nature, feeling the heat of the sun on her shoulders, hearing the chirping of the cicadas and smelling the wild thyme and rosemary. She assimilates all these senses and lets them flow onto the canvas in an attempt to capture the unique moment.
 
She likes to paint energetically, with bold strokes and vibrant colour in an effort to bring the painting together as a whole. “The first of all principles is the need to make sacrifices,” a statement by Delacroix that she never forgets, when she stands before a blank canvas and starts on her creative adventure. 
 
Fi is always trying to not state the obvious, and rather than painting what she sees in front of her, tries to suggest – building a sense of mystery and involvement between artist and viewer.
